Geonomics is introduced as an economic tool to better understand the cyclical and dynamic motion (paradox) of progress and poverty, i.e. crises of the human social economy that seem to accompany techno-logical innovation like 'natural laws'. Some reform steps for future remedies are discussed in-depth, pointing to an efficient balance of monetary tools, energetic principles and eco-logical limits. Rent-seeking (and under-cover interest-seeking) is identified as the systemic root cause of dynamic efficiency loss.

Keywords: geonomics, monetary tools, energetics, dynamic efficiency, economic cycles
